Watch the skits Smokeshrooms and The Secret Arte of Monster Control before you jump down and get the Panacea Bottle x2 from the chest by the rock. Drop off to the west and follow the wall to find a Holy Bottle near the zone, but do not zone.

Hug the west wall and jump off and follow it to a chest with Jet Black Feather x5 and then climb the vines nearby. On the left is a small tunnel you can crawl through to reach the Warrior Emblem and an Aifread’s Treasure with a Mysterious Jewel is in the trees.

Check the north branch for the valuable Jet Black Feathers and Aifreads Treasure.

Jump off and follow the northern wall to a tunnel that hides a Basil and then take either set of vines to reach the eastern upper level. The northeast corner of this upper level has a tunnel to an Orange Gel , while the southern tip has a tunnel with an Elixir on the other side. Jump off the upper level and grab the 1500 Gald by the trees in the south and then leave the zone the same way you came in.

If you zone to the northeast you can access a tunnel with 2000 Gald , but the caravan still blocks they path and you won’t be able to go much further. Instead, head to the west zoneline to leave the Highroad.
